    As jmfall20 said, Apple support is your best bet. This could have failed for many reasons. Most likely, issues with your hard drive. When doing an install of a new OS it performs a file system check and if there are errors that cannot be fixed, it could error out like this. Try booting to your install disk, go into Disk Utility and click Repair Disk. Curious to see if there are any unfixable errors on the drive. I there are not, I would do a full back up, zero out the drive and try again.
